About me

As a Cultural Care local childcare consultant (LCC), I invite our host families and au pairs as well as those considering Cultural Care Au Pair to explore my site and learn about what is going on in our community. I provide year-round support to host families and au pairs, and also talk to families considering the program to help them determine if Cultural Care Au Pair is the right childcare solution for them.

Childcare You Can Trust Like Family!

I love my job as an Au Pair Consultant for Cultural Care Au Pair promoting and bridging the gap for childcare for busy, modern families in the South Bay AND throughout the USA with this wondeful Global Cultural Exchange Program. I am honored to be a liaison for the wonderful host families and amazing au pairs in my area; I provide local support, guidance, and coaching to ensure it is a rich and rewarding experience for all and I’ve received excellent ratings on all Host Family and Au Pair Satisfaction Surveys.  I am proud to have welcomed many new host families onto the program.

I was born in Nairobi, Kenya to West Indian parents.  I was raised in England from the age of 3.  I met my husband while at Manchester University studying for my Bachelor of Education (Hons) degree and taught for 10 years in 3 wonderful elementary schools. I had just completed my classes to become a principal when my husband and I were presented with the wonderful opportunity to come to the USA.  Our plans were to stay for 3 years but 17 years later with American Citizenships we are firmly rooted.

I live in Manhattan Beach with my husband and our three wondeful children!   We all love to travel as we have family in many different parts of the world.  As an LCC for Cultural Care Au Pair, I love meeting and welcoming our wonderful, experienced, and talented group of au pairs to the area – and my kids love meeting them, as well! Our family’s next international adventure is traveling to Australia which is the only continent I do not have family ties with.
